about THE ARTIST
Jessica Christine is the creator of DeerWomen. Her work has been featured internationally. As a Creative Director, she has brought together worlds and travelled worldwide with event management, welcoming and taking care of all needs of visiting high-profile ambassadors, including royals of Belgium. As a STEM teacher, she has taught coding and 3D printing through gaming and robotics. Mentored by Francesca Lia Block, Maja D'Aoust and attended the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp, Belgium amongst others.
At an early age, she cultivated a strong interest in mythology, evolution, travel, and esoteric sciences and applied those interests to the several facets of visual arts. In 2006 she began travelling to the Middle East, where she lived and worked for a number of years. In 2010, she launched DeerWomen, a world to combine her fascination with the art of travel, tea and folklore's long and wonderful history of ritual objects with intent. In 2022, we welcome DeerWomen’s reopening in the heart of Belgium, Antwerpen.
Jessica strives to join the quiet intimacy and elegance of herbs with the magic of storytelling: narratives that emerge from myths, cultures, and stories, both new and old; universal and personal.
Moreover, every work of art holds beauty and strength over time while imbuing the atmosphere of unique traditions and histories. Pieces are sourced from around the globe, made from nature and crafted with intention.

Nature. Vitality. Wild.
Until fairy recently, women relied on their own ingenuity to concoct, produce, and blend their cosmetics. They used natural herbs from the fields, garden flowers, barks and roots, fruits, berries, and even clays and muds from the earth as beauty aids. Unfortunately, as the world becomes more cluttered, noisy and further retreats from natural and becomes a place for “modern city-dwellers”, woman have to find their way again to their roots, escape the madness, rat-race and find the fresh air and loveliness of the tangled forests, animals & gardens in the world.
Going to the store to buy something readily made is quite easy as well, but synthetic cosmetics with their artificial chemical ingredients, colourings, imitation scents and toxic (even cancerous) additives have brought nothing but disaster to most women's complexions and overall appearance.
DeerWomen is meant to explore the art and knowledge of handmade ritual teas, rites, creams, lotions and potions. These are 100% natural and made with a little KitchenWitchery on certain moon phases & in ritualistic manners. With ingredients collected from travelling the world and recipes passed down from libraries of traditional holistic women, intuition and spiritual herbalists DeerWomen is here to pursue wild beauty inspired by the Native American DeerWomen, whilst invoking elegance and knowledge.
With ingredients stirred from all corners of the earth to create natural products that appeal to the senses. Elegant, sexy & unique.
